What is Vlinder

It is more than a game

Vlinder: A Behavior Changing Game

Ages 4-12

The Vlinder game includes two important components: Task Sheets and Reward Cards. Parents and caregivers can use them to create environments that foster positive life skills and correct unwanted behaviors.

Task Sheets are customizable responsibility lists that provide daily structure for children. These responsibilities include household chores, as well as nurturing relationships at home and in the community.

Reward Cards give children incentives and motivations to follow through with the responsibilities on their Task Sheets.

Vlinder also enhances other life skills, which have more to do with process than tasks. From the very beginning of the game, family members learn to communicate openly with each other. Children learn teamwork skills, how to ask for help, and the best ways to respond to others’ requests. Vlinder players learn to manage stress and anger – and reach out to their support systems.

Everyone who plays Vlinder wins the game!

The main difference between Vlinder and Vlinder Littles is that the tasks have been drawn in. Kiddos can be independent. There are additional age-appropriate reward cards.

What Motivates Your Children?

We all have different motivations, but we all respond well to the promise of reward. Vlinder uses rewards that you can find around your home, in your support network, and in your children’s imaginations. Your kids earn these rewards (shown on Reward Cards) by accomplishing tasks on their Task Sheets. The game includes 100 Reward Cards, as well as 4 blank cards you can customize with your children as you discover their unique motivations.

Vlinder helps parents and caregivers learn to set clear goals and expectations. You will find instructions on the backs of your Task Sheets that help you clarify and break down each of your children’s tasks. Task Sheets initiate the specific responsibilities children are expected to complete and define criteria for successful completion. You can customize both tasks and expectations, letting you collaborate with your kids (and even scratch out expectations that don’t make sense for a particular child). By asking questions and listening to your children’s answers, you’ll discover their natural excitement to contribute to the process. Kids can provide a wealth of information about their motivations to accomplish simple household tasks.

B.F. Skinner, a famous Behaviorist psychologist, recognized the role of both positive and negative reinforcement in shaping behavior. In his research, he observed that consistency facilitated long-term change. Vlinder helps parents and caregivers maintain consistency at home by challenging children to succeed, providing clear expectations, and offering a fun and motivational reward system.You deserve the best! With Vlinder, you can simplify and streamline your family schedule and enjoy an easy-to-manage home!

Testimonials

What Parents are Saying

I saw immediate results with our morning routine. My children became motivated by positive reinforcements and look forward to drawing a new card from the moment they wake up. It gives them a way to take responsibility for themselves and they continue to rise to the occasion more than a year later. This product was a game changer for us. Our mornings have gone from being a constant struggle to being the most pleasant part of our day. Our day begins on a positive note every day, something I did not know could be accomplished. I’m so grateful to have come across this product. It changes the negative struggles to positive reinforcements and I don’t have to be the bad guy anymore. I don’t have to be the ‘yelling’ mom. I don’t have to count to three, or threaten timeout and I don’t have to stand over my child for 7 minutes every morning trying to get her to brush her teeth… or put shoes on… or, or, or!! I love it!!!! I would recommend this to any family for any struggle – big or small!!! Just for example’s sake… they set their alarm and get themselves up for school, make their beds, put their dishes in the sink, pack their lunches, and so much more. I don’t have to ask for these things, it’s just the promise of drawing more cards that motivates them. Seriously… it’s like magic!

Rachel Armor

I have 9-year old boy and 3-year old daughter.  As full-time working parents, busy mornings and evenings makes our house hold a bit chaotic.  With Vlinder, my son knows exactly what my expectations are.  It saves me from asking him what to do all the time.  My daughter just follows her brother and copies what he does.  Sometimes she is the one who makes her bed before her brother and tells him to do the same!  This has been a great tool for my family because it’s so organized for parents to follow and make it fun for kids!  I recommend Vlinder for parents looking for organized ways to teach their kids daily responsibilities and recognize their efforts in a fun way.

Fumie Mihaly

I can’t believe what a change I’ve seen in my 8-year-old son,
and he’s not even playing the game; just his little sister is playing.

Her good manners have set such a good example for him,
that he now has better behavior when interacting with her. Due
to less arguments with his sister, he now has a much more positive view of her.
He now greets her with hugs when he comes home, and he invites her to join
in on playtime.

He also has started helping out with chores.

When I ask him to help me with something, he immediately responds, instead of ignoring me, as he has always done in the past.
He sees his little sister taking responsibility, and he doesn’t want to be left out. He now makes his bed in the morning,
and for the first time in his life, will clean up his toys when asked.
